My first collegiate touchdown at SMU which was a 50 yarder it was a fun experience.

What sets you apart from other running backs?

My ability to be a pass protector and catch the ball and get the tough yards if you need me too.

What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

Every time I touch the ball it’s electric and loose when I go and get the tough yards every play.

If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who?

It would be Emmitt Smith.

Mostly the fan base it’s different than any other fan base I’ve seen. For them to travel down from North Dakota to Texas and seeing green and gold it was surreal.

I love just being in the power I, I love it and think it suits my strengths and I really gel with it.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

James Proche, because I just think as a receiver he’s everything you wanted and he has a big heart and even though he went in the 6th I feel like he should’ve gone higher with his productivity. And Xavier Jones he was a RB at SMU and set the new single season touchdown record that was previously held by Eric Dickerson.
